The wheels keep on turnin’ here in Manchester with the Conservation Leadership Corps!


You may smell that sweet scent of wood smoke before you see them coming, but they are making an impact in Manchester – and it’s not their smell!

Momentum has started and shows no signs of slowing down for the four new leaders of the Manchester high school program. After arriving January 8th, these four have hit the ground running contacting organizations, heading into the schools, and planning.

The program kicked off with tremendous turn out motivating the four leaders to explore the possibility of doing more than biweekly meetings. Anticipate new and unique opportunities to come as the summer approaches.
Excitement surrounds the new connections and projects in Manchester. Some organizations we will be working with this year are: Manchester Parks and Recreation, Massebesic Audubon Center, the New Hampshire River Council, Manchester Urban Pond Restoration, the Department of Environmental Services and the Nature Conservancy.
Be on the lookout for the blue coats on the coast this weekend! The Seacoast Science Center is the next stop for this group.

As always, keep up with their regular posts in the community program section at
